The Baptizing of America

The Baptizing of America

The Religious Right's Plans for the Rest of Us

Here, at last, are the war plans of America’s own religious extremists. The Baptizing of America exposes the systematic campaign by Christian fundamentalists to co-opt and take over every “room” of American society from the bedroom to the school room, hospital room, operating room, courtroom, work room, reading room and newsroom. This book focuses on the aggressive and well-funded war currently being led by fundamentalist Christians to “baptize America.” It is a prolonged battle that will determine whether the United States remains a spiritually vital country — but one without an officially established religion — or whether it will become “Christianized,” a “faith-based nation” in which fundamentalist Christianity will be the sole legal dominant religion throughout the land. The war will decide whether America follows the path of many other nations and becomes a theocracy, not unlike Iran and the former Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
